Tanzania Safari - Serengeti
Tanzania Safari - Serengeti Reviews
May 20, 2004
One thing I would strongly advise anyone visiting Serengeti is to have a fully charged mobile phone with a pre-paid sim card with enough call credit (US$10-20) with you before you embark on the journey. And DO NOT allow your driver to go off the marked road.
We were on our amazing Safari trip and for some reason following the Cheetah, we went offroad and in the middle of nowhere the Landrover battery stalled. The driver had no means of communicating it back to his company. Sheer luck of having the mobile phone enabled us to call for rescue. We could have been stuck in the middle of noweher otherwise for God knows how long..
On another occassion we also had a flat tyre, so be prepared for real adventure in the company of BIG 5!!!
If you point your camera towards Masai to take their pictures, be prepared to be asked for money. Keepsmall notes with you.Ask before you takethe picture. We kept some fruitsto give away and kids were happy with apples and bananas!
I personally found people in Tanzania less aggressive and more warm& hospitable than in Kenya towards tourists.
